Weight

Weight

We all carry it…

oh, it doesn’t have to be those unsightly expanding fat cells that make it obvious we are carrying more weight…

We can carry the weight of so many things and we don’t even realize the depth, destruction, or heaviness of it all until we start to let it go.

This lead image has always spoke to me…

I don’t know the original author – it’s circulated for years around the net.

But it inspires me… it brings me hope… that we can chisel our way out of those weights (seen and unseen) that we carry.

Many of those unseen weights can lead to extra weight on our frames that are visible.

What are some weights that we carry?

The weight of…

Disappointments

Grief

Death

Sickness

Disease

Rejection

Abuse

Trauma

Betrayal

Loneliness

Regret

Shame

Barrenness

Unkind words

Anger

Bitterness

Resentment

Unforgiveness

Offense

It could go on and on …..

But guess what …

As much as you try to use the extra weight as a shield or wall to protect yourself from others or keep stuffing those emotional weights down they will just keep weighing you down emotionally and physically and can ultimately destroy you.

You see, they aren’t ever truly hidden.

There is a God who sees and knows every void you try to stuff.

There is a God who sees every counterfeit comfort you use to soothe your wounds.

There is a God who sees through the tough facade that pushes back the tears.

There is a God who sees every man or woman that is desperately wanting to chisel their way out of the heaviness of all the weight/s they carry.

There is a God who sees and is waiting for you to ask Him for help.

It takes time – it takes effort – and it is absolutely worth it!

Are you ready to start chiseling off those weights today?

God is near.

God sees you.

Ask Him to help.

“You Are The God Who Sees Me.”
